TRANSPORTATION AROUND THE APARTMENT
Taxi cabs in Quito are both safe and affordable. There are plenty passing by right in front of the apartment.
I went to Johnson&Wales (Miami Campus) where I fell in love with all things related to the hotel industry. While I was in school and after graduating I spent three years working at the Ritz Carlton...where nothing but the best is offered to guests! I hope to bring a little of that experience to my guests.
Renting through Homeaway allows me to spend time with my two toddlers. I am in love with my city, I'm sure you´ll fall in love with Quito! I've done my best to make both my properties beautiful and comfortable.
I´m Ecuadorean!I love Quito!
Truly the best location and view of Quito. Enjoy the unique feeling of a traditional Quito neighborhood.You can experience a traditional Ecuadorian farmers' market on Fridays or the luxury of the Swissotel across the street.
We also take great care of our property,making sure everything is what one would want at home or better.We like to keep our apartment and everything in it very clean, so no need to wash linens or towels at the end of your stay, these are professionally washed.
Dear Carla: I want to thank you for renting me your fabulous apartment. It was perfect for a break between my huge tour of the country and my Spanish Immersion lessons. The location is fantastic and I was able to explore huge amounts of Quito. Cabs were easy to pick up at the hotel, but I also became proficient at riding the bus. As a senior citizen I got most places for just 13 cents! But almost all taxies are $5.00 - Do The Math. Thanks for all the attention with the ride from the airport and return of the deposit. Maybe I can convince my wife to come some time!
My husband and I were very satisfied with our stay in this apartment, but with a few minor suggestions to help the owner. We were here for 3 nights, Fri-Mon. Everything on this apartment's website is EXACTLY as pictured. We loved being on the top floor with a beautiful view of the city. We felt very secure in this apartment, and although it doesn't list it on this website, the owner made sure we had a local cell phone and charger to use while we were there, which we REALLY APPRECIATED! The owner provided 6 bananas on a tray, along with a very tall bottle of water--we appreciated them both, and that kind gesture. We totally, also, appreciated the washer/dryer and blender! The apartment was in clean and pristine condition.
Other things we personally noticed, and also to help the owner maintenance wise:
1. It appears the dryer is not properly vented or that there may be a blockage somewhere in the dryer vent. This is notable because it took our clothes way too long to dry (and there was NO LINT in the lint catcher). A lack of proper venting could be cause for a fire hazard, which we would hate to see, both for the apartment owner and for the building itself. Please check this out, as having to run the dryer for a considerable amount of time also raises your electric bill considerably!
2. There were DVDs in the apartment by the television, but no DVD player. It might be better to remove those DVDs since there is no DVD player actually in the apartment.
3. When the owner quoted the price for our stay, she added another cleaning fee (for towels and linens). That was a problem for us because that fee was NOT quoted at all on the website. My suggestion is to update the website to reflect that charge accordingly, otherwise a prospective renter might consider it similar to "false advertising" because it is NOT on the apartment's site rental at all. But honestly, our thoughts, even if it were on the website, we would have been more inclined to look elsewhere because of that "extra cleaning fee."
4. We asked the apartment owner if we could pay a partial day fee to stay at the apartment with our luggage until 730 pm, particularly if no one was going to be checking in the day we were leaving. We asked her to please let us know, so that we would know how to plan for our check out day, but she never replied back with an answer either way. She did say she would have to charge us for another entire day, because it would not allow her to rent to anyone else.:-(
Staying at this apartment was absolutely perfect. Everything was well maintained and Carla was exceptionally helpful. The location was great - everything was within walking distance - the university, supermarket, restaurants etc., and on top of all that it had an amazing view. I would definitely recommend this to any of my friends or relatives and I would definitely stay here again!
What would you do if you found the perfect place to stay in Quito? Go back! That's what I did and loved it even more the second time. The apartment is in a great location, has scenic views in the living room and bedroom, modern decor, very friendly doorman 24/7, and all the comforts of home.
The neighborhood is full of restaurants, a big supermarket and also has a farmers market every Friday. Food choices and fresh ingredients abound.
Carla replied to my emails promptly and was always very helpful. Beautiful apartment in a stellar part of town and great customer service make for a very enjoyable experience in Quito.
The description was as listed and the owner promptly responded to all questions via email. She also arranged for a driver who was reliable, punctual and friendly. The apartment is well-equipped and just blocks from a supermarket. Also close to Swisshotel and Radisson for quick taxi instructions if your Spanish isn't proficient. Also has security in the lobby. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to anyone interested. Enjoy your stay!

This apartment has everything necessary to make staying in Quito as comfortable as possible. The location is central to everything in the city. It is directly across the street from the beautiful Swisshotel. The Supermaxi (supermarket) is a two minute walk. The building has security and doorman 24/7. The best surprise was finding that this apartment is on the top floor of the building and the views of Quito, both new and old, the mountains and the sunrises were uncompromised. There's plenty of closet space. The kitchen and is fully applianced and the entire apartment is ultra clean. The best part was working with Carla who took the time to answer every question and even offer assistance to make our Quito trip a success. She promptly answered every email ( and there were many). She also made getting to and from the airport a snap by putting us in touch with Santiago, our driver, who was prompt and friendly and efficient. This was our first trip to Quito but it won't be our last. We will not consider staying anywhere but here. As a side note: Taxis are the least expensive and best way to get around the city. They are abundant right outside the front door of this building. Don't miss exploring Old Town and the double decker bus tour, the Teleferica, Parque la Carolina, Quicentro Mall and if you're looking for amazing food, try Zazu and Z(inc) Gastro Bar. Also directly across the street from this apartment, Swisshotel has a fabulous coffee, pastry, bakery and sandwich shop called Quito Deli. It will become your morning and afternoon respite. Carla, thank you once again for providing the best place to rest our heads at the end of the day. We loved every minute of our stay.
The apartment building is across the street from Swissotel Hotel (5 star) which offers Japanese, American and Swiss restaurants as well as a cafeteria where you can have breakfast or grab a sandwich for lunch and enjoy some wonderful Ecuadorian coffee. You can also walk to other great restaurants and bars in five to ten minutes. Night life at Plaza Foch is a 10 minute drive away.The colonial old town, the largest and most beautiful in South America, is 15 minutes by taxi- no need to worry Quito has affordable and safe taxi service. You shouldn't miss the cable car to Pichincha at 15.000 feet, which offers an amazing view of the city and a theme park if traveling with children. Bird watching and white water rafting one hour away at Mindo. Papallacta thermal baths with impressive views are also a one and a half hour drive away.
